Using intra-species variation in three-spined sticklebacks, the authors show that dwarfism evolves rapidly in resource poor lakes in the absence of smaller competitors. This is one of the first studies to examine in detail the ecological correlates of dwarfism within a species, and the first to do so in fish.
